GM Vietnam is recalling 10,342 Chevrolet Captiva CA26R, Captiva CF26R, Captiva KLAC1DF, and Captiva KLAC1FF cars manufactured between December 1, 2006 and October 30, 2011 for a replacement of the antilock brake system (ABS), the company said.
The ABS system is recommended to be equipped on Chevrolet sedans, but the brake fluid A DOT 4 used in the cars can reduce the system’s operation effectiveness, the Vietnam Registry said.
Owners of imported Chevrolet Captiva and Chevrolet Windstorm cars from China and Korea, which also belong to a similar recall in the two countries, are also eligible to enjoy the repair and replacement in Vietnam, GM Vietnam said.
The recall is implemented at all authorised dealers and service centers of GM Vietnam across the country.
In late April, Euro Auto, the authorised dealer of BMW in Vietnam, also announced a recall of 178 BMW 5- and 6-series cars in Vietnam due to problems with the battery-cable cover that was incorrectly installed.
A month earlier, the local importer and distributor of Porsche in Vietnam, the Prestige Sports Co Ltd, also launched a recall campaign of 131 Porsche CAYENNE (diesel), CAYENNE S Hybrid, CAYENNE S and CAYENNE Turbo models to check and replace the lock of the front headlight.
The recall was for cars made between March 8, 2010 and January 31, 2012, the importer said.
